Whether you have low self-esteem, you’re introverted, highly sensitive, anxious, quiet, or just plain awkward, if you feel nervous and uncomfortable around other people, I want to help you become confident. I know that, as much as you’d like to deny it, there’s a bundle of uniqueness caught up inside you and that, if only you could let it out, everyone would see that you are pretty damn awesome. Accept yourself for who you are rather than comparing yourself to others. List your accomplishments, strengths, and embrace them. What other people are able to do with or without anxiety in no way diminishes what you do or who you are. Remember, It’s unrealistic to tell yourself you should be able to handle a given situation without some form of worry. Look for reasons why it actually is ok to be experiencing anxiety and what strengths you have to endure. Don’t let your negative thoughts control you!
